Description

A new lid on the block.

Known for its snow, skate, ski, and commuting helmets, Bern is now dipping its toes into the road cycling market with the FL-1 MIPS Helmet. In contrast to the sea of overly streamlined lids, this helmet brings an edgy aesthetic and boasts industry-leading tech to cover everything from going off the front of a local Tuesday Night Worlds peloton to dodging errant chipmunks on your daily commute.

MIPS, which is short for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, is a strategically anchored, thin liner on the inside of the helmet that looks exceptionally simple but serves a big purpose. That little liner is designed to move independently of the helmet's shell and diffuse the rotational forces caused by some crashes.

Bern recognizes that, while it's not a helmet's first priority, we do also enjoy being comfortable in the saddle, so it incorporates 18 vents to facilitate ample cooling airflow. A Bern Yoke adjustment system allows 360 degrees of adjustability so you can customize the fit to perfectly match your dome for a comfortable ride.

Bulky and Noisy for a road helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

I was really excited to get this helmet and try it out. The initial impression was that this helmet looked cool and I like Bern helmets having been a city commuter for the past few years. The helmet runs big and I didn't like how low it was on my brow. This helmet fits rounder heads well, but was too big for my head and I found there was a lot of overhang on the sides. It was very comfortable and the harness did cinch down around my head, however, it feels heavy when worn. I also found that it was really tough to find a spot for my sunglasses when i was doing a long climb and needed a place to store them. All in all, this helmet was adequate. It would be good for someone who has a more round head and likes the Bern style.

What's the weight? Kind of scary for a road helmet if not listed.
